  • Applies to:
  • Virtuozzo containers


  1. You install Parallels Desktop (PD) to a physical machine Host1.
  2. You create a virtual machine using PD.
  3. You then install Parallels Virtuozzo Containers (PVC) application to that virtual machine.
  4. After that you use PVC functionality to create a container (virtual environment).
  5. You try to connect to that container by its IP address, but connections fail no matter what networking modes are set in PD and PVC.


Such functionality is absent in desktop virtualization products of Parallels.


PVC container in the above example can be accessed only from the host machine, i.e. from Host1.

If you need the ability to connect to your containers from other nodes, you should consider using a server virtualization product, e.g. Parallels Server Bare Metal.
